Kernersville License Plate Agency to Close August 15 Thursday, August 15, 2013

Five nearby license plate agencies serve the area


RALEIGH — The Kernersville license plate agency located at 1325 E. Hwy 66 South will close at the end of business Thursday, Aug. 15. The agency will not re-open due to the recent death of the agency contractor, who operated the agency since 1975.


The policy of the Division of Motor Vehicles is to seek new applicants to operate a license plate agency whenever a contract expires or ends. The Division is accepting applications for a new agency in the Kernersville area. Routinely, it takes about four months to establish a new agency.  


Plate agency applications (Form MVR-93 or Form MVR-93AA) are located on the NCDMV website. Interested applicants are invited to download an application form for a motor vehicle LPA or call (919) 861-3332 with questions. The application must be returned to NCDMV no later than Monday, Sept. 16, 2013.
